Keep track of orders of items and services from vendors

Purchase order management is used to keep track of orders of items and services from vendors. It also allows users to receive items from vendors in parts. When a purchase invoice is received from a vendor, the purchase order is updated with the quantity as well as the purchase prices of each item or service.

Any new purchase prices can be updated directly on the items.



If a purchase order needs to be cancelled the user can simply copy/paste from the original order to avoid retyping information. Purchase orders can also be resent and reprinted.

Foreign currency

Users who trade with foreign vendors need to create purchase orders and make payments, etc. in foreign currency. Uniconta allows users to create transactions in the local or a foreign currency. Users can also select whether to update exchange rates automatically.

Mass updates

Uniconta provides the unique feature of mass purchase updates. This saves time and optimizes workflow. Users can also add item lines to existing purchase orders directly in the purchase journals. Purchase costs such as customs and freight can also be allocated to the item lines. If the user is informed of costs after the purchase invoice has been posted, then the cost on the purchase invoice can still be edited.

“It’s fundamental to us at alton&heim that we simplify things to make them straightforward for the customer. Indeed, we experience the same simplicity with Uniconta. They have done the thinking for us, so we don’t have to spend a massive amount of time on meaningless choices. Instead the tools are already set up in the system and can be used right away.”

Henrik Althoehn Henriksen, Director and Partner at alton&heim
